The stage between Most na Soči and Tolmin is a short and panoramic walk along the green accumulation lake.
The entire stage from Most na Soči runs along the walking path to Tolmin.
Tolmin is a nice town built on the terraces above the confluence of the rivers Soča and Tolminka. The area itself is quite popular among the residents and also a famous venue of international music festivals in summer. Tolmin is an old town with a castle on the picturesque Kozlov rob above the town. The town itself has been known since WWI as the start point of the famous Isonzo Front. After eleven bloody Italian offensives, the Austrian and German military forces broke through the front in the twelfth Isonzo battle and pushed the Italian army back to the Piave River.
Today, Tolmin is the administrative centre of the valley and a starting point for various activities for visitors.
Because the stage is very short, we can spend the day exploring additional sites: we can walk to Sotočje, ascend to the castle or visit the most famous natural sight of the valley, the Tolmin Gorge.
The entire section has phone reception. There are no specialities, caution is needed on 200-metre section along the regional road.
This is most probably the easiest stage of the trail.
